Nationalism – a Semantic Short Circuit

Today is the National Holiday in Sweden. In recent years the National Holiday has become the subject of much argumentation as to its validity and whether or not it is inclusive or exclusive. I browsed through the major editorials covering the broad spectrum of views on this subject, as well as the public commentary following […]


“Om Danmark och Norge har rasistisk och fascistisk retorik i deras politik som dessa uttalanden säger, är det inte då logiskt att dra slutsatsen att rasism och fascism måste vara två av de bästa metoderna för att skapa några av världens främsta länder eftersom både Norge och Danmark ligger inom top-20-listor i världsundersökningar angående nästan alla faktorer? “

Sweden and the Syrian refugee crisis – An overview

“It is a like a downward spiral. The more Sweden focuses on receiving refugees, the less money goes to refugee camps, the more refugees leave their camps and come to Sweden, who needs more money to receive them and takes it from the relief and aid portion of the budget which results in even worse conditions at the camps, resulting in more refugees leaving and try to come to Europe – an evil circle without an end.”


“I have just three things to teach: simplicity, patience, compassion. These three are your greatest treasures. Simple in actions and in thoughts, you return to the source of being. Patient with both friends and enemies, you accord with the way things are. Compassionate toward yourself, you reconcile all beings in the world.”

Truth – Imposed or Self-discovered

“The best teachers don’t hand you the answers on a silver platter, but point out the way and let you make up you own mind about which road and which destination, while advising where the ditches are.”

Sweden – Welcome back to “Absurdistan!”

“Who would have thought that visiting Sweden again after 25 years abroad would be an experience tantamount to a digitally impaired man in an Apple store?”


“När jag från andra sidan världen tittar in på Sverige får jag känslan av att vara i ett parallelluniversum. Ett parallelluniversum där politikers uttalanden låter som dialog från Sound Of Music medan hat bland folk i allmänt har brytit igenom ljudvallen. “


“Isn’t it time we change how we view politics and base it on common sense instead of some ideology dreamed up over a hundred years ago when circumstances were utterly different than now?”


“We are all captives of the picture in our head – our belief that the world we have experienced is the world that really exists.”


“Only by winning the hearts and minds of the majority of people can you in my opinion embark on a winning strategy. Glorious or inglorious defeat should not be your aim. Hong Kong people do not want chaos and conflicts; they want someone who will make their life better.”
